Grant's Rants on the Economic Crisis

How those who control the credit control the world

First of all, an important point: The fates of nations are not decided by their governments. It is in the dark corridors of financial power where the most important and far-reaching decisions are made. Presidents or Congressmen do make some important decisions, but often they simply implement policies that have already been decided on.

    1. We begin with the premise that most nations of the world live in debt, with little hope of ever paying back what they owe. They do, however, pay interest on their debts. And this arrangement over time is far more lucrative to the lenders, for the amounts repaid end up being far above and beyond the original amount lent.


    2. So these lenders, large financial institutions, loan money to nations, knowing full well that these very nations which borrow it will have a hard time paying it back. The borrower thus becomes servant to the lender. (Proverbs 22:7, The Bible). If a nation does not bow to their demands, that nation finds it more difficult to obtain the money it needs. It finds itself being squeezed financially, and without the money available through credit, it can neither pay its debts nor buy its oil needs.


    3. In fact, funds are not truly loaned out, for they come with many strings attached. For example, development loans which specify that U.S. companies must do or manage the work, at a high cost; military loans which specify that U.S. weapons must be purchased; agricultural loans which specify the purchase of U.S. seeds or crops or farm equipment. In many of these cases, these "loans" end up being spent in the U.S., so the money was not really loaned out at all. The borrowers do get some benefit, it's true, but more than anything else they get debt, which equates to outside control of their economy and their country.


    4. So the Western bankers and politicians arrange the loans, knowing that these funds will be invested in the businesses of their home country, which will profit. Economic hit men offer a deal to the target nation that in essence they cannot refuse, lest it be invaded and subjugated.


    5. The big businesses in the bankers’ home country are thus eager to support the government so that they can get a share of this lucrative business, and in turn they funnel gifts to various politicians or political campaigns.


    6. The politicians are happy to get these funds, for they help them get and stay elected, and they reciprocate by helping these businesses, knowing that the favor will be returned. The politicians are also aware that they will not be in politics forever, but will someday have to return to business themselves.


    7. These financial returns also make their way back to the huge banks run by the moneymakers, who create yet more money by loaning it out again and again, and the cycle continues--resulting in increasing debts for most nations and peoples of the world, and increasing profits and power over the nations for those who run these giant banks.


    8. The war-driven “defense” companies profit most of all. Weapons are needed to help keep the borrowing nations in line, whether through the threat of force or through actual force, or to extend the power and authority of the men of politics and business, whereby nations which will not cut a deal are invaded or governments overthrown.


    9. Again, in simple terms, when the men of war need weapons, they turn to the men of politics to appropriate the money, who do so, knowing that it will go to the men of business. Naturally, when the men of war retire, they often find places for themselves among the men of business or the men of politics, and they then continue the cycle of deal-making and profit-making, a conquest that enriches them all.


    10.The losers are the ever-increasing poor of the world, for they are left with the burdensome debts which they and their children and their children's children must pay off, which means that their governments can offer them less in the way of services--less food aid, fewer jobs and lower-paying ones when they are available, less medical care and education, and less of almost anything other than debt and taxes and poverty.


 

* The Bible denotes the men of business as riders of the Black Horse
and
the men of war as riders of the Red Horse on the great stage of life. 

The only thing that breaks this abovementioned cycle is the return of the
Rider of the White HorseThe good news is that once this takes place, 
the meek will inherit the Earth and delight themselves in the abundance 
of peace and prosperity. 

That's the happy ending in this saga.
